    I have a question with regard to heat dissapation, since the more heat you can get rid of the better it is for the life of an engine, and the leaner you can run it (to a degree), has anyone considered using a thermal conductive compound between the head and the motor.

    I considered trying ArcticSilver, but that only operates up to 180 degrees. The benefit would be that you get much better conductivity between the two connecting surfaces therefore, better heat exchange and thus cooler running, as thermal compound is designed to fill in all the pits and imperfections in the two mating surfaces (microscopic pits).

    If any one has tried this or has an idea where I can get something that operates in the 200 - 270 degree range I would be very interested.

    Thank you for your time
